After a previous decade where the best player in the world was also the most dominant in history in Tiger Woods, the 2010’s delivered a much blurrier picture.
It also posed the question; how do we replace Tiger? The answer would be we wouldn’t have to.
When the decade began it looked like Rory McIlroy would be the clear-cut heir apparent and answer to the big question of who replaces Tiger.
However, as we neared the middle on the decade the story line was less clear. We saw the emergence of Jordan Spieth, the maturing of Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka’s meteoric rise and finally the resurrection of Tiger Woods which would suggest that the second half of this decade has created a healthy debate.
When you look at the decade as a whole and when you consider McIlroy’s current form it may even set him up to be the player of the next decade as well.
There is no debate that Rory McIlroy is the player of the decade.

The proof is in the numbers, four major wins, 25 worldwide wins, 95 weeks at number one, two Fed Ex Cup victories, and three Race to Dubai titles.
No other players resume in the past decade is even close to Rory’s.
